grilled peaches? now that's an interesting means of locomotion. I like my peaches, plums, cherries, and berries cold out of the fridge, but I'll give it a try sometime.

[3] I'm more on your side, but not quite.
The best peaches and berries are the ones you eat just picked and still warm from the sun. This cannot be improved upon, in my opinion. (So far this year I've had only strawberries that way, but I'll be going for blueberries soon.)

Baked, pies, flavors of ice cream, cobbler, jam... all good. But not as good.

I don't think I ever put peaches in the fridge. I agree, just picked and warm from the sun is ideal. But dude, peaches on the grill, worth trying. And if you spoon some nice balsamic vinegar over them when you take them off, that won't hurt. Neither would vanilla ice cream.

Mmmm. Yeah, that does sound good. Or just some Merlot, instead of the balsamic? I'll definitely try.

Just got back from an amazing tapas, by the way. Alcachofas with Serrano ham, holy shit. I'll be attempting that at home... if I can get the Serrano.

6) Holy My Gosh that sounds amazing. Love Serrano ham but couldn't you replace it with a Speck or Prosciutto?

And yeah, the Merlot would work I think.

[7] You could, I would say. And there are other Spanish hams almost as good, too.

Tapas, what a concept. Especially in summer.
